Kurokuzan Zanzaka Odori

Out of the many “Zanzaka” dances in the Tajima Region, this one is known to have the longest history. The dancers wear momohiki (traditional Japanese bottoms) and tsutsusode (kimono dress sleeve) while dancing and shouting “zanzakazakazaka, zanzaka zatto.” The lyrics, movement and costume of the dance is from the later half of the Muromachi period. It is said that this dance was originated by those who prayed for rich harvest of the 5 grains and to prevent illness. The dance is held every year at Hie Shrine on the third Sunday of October.
